Nicholas Hoult is keeping himself busy since splitting from Jennifer Lawrence.

The couple - who met on the set of 'X-Men: First Class' in 2010 - broke-up in January, and Nicholas' method of coping with heartbreak is to immerse himself in work.

He explained: ''It's good to keep busy and focus, and have a lot of other stuff to think about.''

Probed as to whether he and the fun loving beauty would find it tough reuniting on the set of forthcoming mutant superhero film 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', he swiftly changed the subject after admitting it wouldn't feel weird ''at all''.

He replied in an interview with ES magazine: ''No, not at all. We had a great time making that first film and the whole cast got along really well. And I'm really pleased that Bryan [Singer] is directing ... Did you see what I did there? I segued out of that quite skilfully?''

Jennifer was voted Sexiest Woman Alive in a poll last year, but Nicholas insists he wasn't fazed by his ex-girlfriend's sex symbol status because he just thinks of her as a normal girl.

He quipped: ''It's like, I know her. I never really get star-struck by actors.''
